JohnDrake750John (pictured right) has a close 43-year connection to Jerusalem and the Holy Land with his Boundary Breakers travel and education project. He fell in love with Jerusalem when, in 1969, he was asked by the then Anglican Archbishop in Jerusalem to undertake “street work” in the Old City.

“I have been encouraged with a number of requests to Boundary Breakers for assistance in helping other Christian leaders structure their own Holy Land Encounters,” he said.

“In the next 12 months we have groups going from Lakenheath, Birmingham, London and Wales. All it needs is for one key leader in a community to float the idea or rise to the challenge and others will rally round and so the adventure begins."

John is an Independent Travel Facilitator and works in association with Worldwide Christian Travel Ltd who are ABTA and ATOL bonded.
